It was time to update my portfolio, I have added 6 websites to the top of
it. School is about to start again so I am burnt out on the web stuff so
I can stay focused on class. College is working on me, because now I am not
so sure if I want to be a Mechnical Engineer or not. I am not dying to goto
my math classes, even though I haven't made lower than a 97 in them yet,
I just don't get the thrill. However, my classes like History, Philosophy,
and even English I enjoy going to. I think this is a sign that I may want
to look into other fields like Business. I have this fear that with a ME
degree, I will just be acting like a web developer but getting paid about
30k more a year. I don't want to be the techy anymore in the corner.
6/26/03 - Seems that someone has gotten a virus and is sending it to look like it is coming joor at joor.com which has been disabled for almost 6 months. I am sorry if you have received anything that appears to have come from me. If anyone is still getting this, send me the source so I can try and figure out who is sending it.
5/21/03 - School is out for right now so I have gotten some time to focus on the site. Added a new graphic to the header. I blew my 4.0 GPA, I got a B in English Composition II and found out 1 week before the class was over that I didn't even need it for my degree. I was ahead of everyone in our class but the A paper was ridiculous. It was over themes that we had not gone over all semester. Anyways, I now have a 3.86. Soon I will be adding a few sites that I have completed during the semester to my portfolio.
3/11/03 - I have added some stuff to the portfolio section for your viewing pleasure. I am currently on spring break so I think I may make a new header graphic for this site within the week. Have a good Spring Break if you are in school.
Added a mailing list as well, so if you would like to receive updates about my joor.com and kodeine.net sites, please sign up. You can remove your self from the list from a link that will be sent with each mailing.
2/24/03 - Finally a new track. I have produced a track under my name Kodeine and developed a small sister site dedicated to my dance floor drum and bass. The site can be found at www.kodeine.net and the new some is titled Deliverance. You will see the sites share quite a few common things but out of professionalism I felt it best to separate the two. I have also created the mailing list feature so that I can keep in touch with everyone, it is located on the front page.
School is going very well again this semester, so far all A's and we have gon through our first rounds of testing. Man history is hard if you get a good professor. Wish me luck, I need it to get into University of Texas.
12/13/02 - It's official, my first finished semester in college at 28 and I have a 4.0. Second highest grade in Philosophy (very hard class), 98 in Math, an A in english, and a 100+ in effective learning (I got over a 100 in the class due to extra credit). Looks like I might actually be ready to do school this time around. Already registered for my next semester and ready to tackle history.
11/21/02 - Can you believe it, I moved hosts again. It turns out that one of my sites is getting more support then I realized so I have moved to a dedicated server. Can you say, holy cow things are faster? This site won't show much as in the difference in processing speed but my other forum site sure does.
11/16/02 - Man, had no idea how crazy the end of a semister gets. Maybe because I never made it to the end before :). I can't imagine making good grades in college if I was younger and still having fun. So far my grades are good, I am in the 4.0 zone, but that could change fast, have to focus.
Even though I am trying to get away from the web work, I have been missing it quite a bit. So I have done a little web work to try and help make ends meet and to cure my insanity. At least I haven't played the online games, that is gone forever, they are to damn dangerous. So I took on a small project for supplementcentral.com, refreshing their look and making it seamless on their vbulletin forum and miva shpping cart. Miva looks like a pretty decent shopping cart system. I wouldn't purchase it, but a lot of hosts provide it for free. Also updated the look at rcfiles.com, this was to refresh it a little and make it a little easier on the eyes.
10/25/02 - Playing
musical hosts here. I have moved to a new host because I got hooked up. In order
to do it I had to port my site to php, and so far, I am really impressed with
the parsing sped of it. Seems like php has come a long way. Can you believe I
am not using any microsoft, don't make me bust out my Mandrake. Well the site
has moved to Ventures Online, and
the have a huge pipe just like gearhost.
So expect to see faster downloads. If anyone has any questions on hosting, give
me a shout, I have been to hell and back researching it.
- Finally got my verisign issues handled and moved this site off of hostway.com.
My new host is gearhost.com, and so far
this has been the best experience I have ever had with setting up an account.
Within 30 minutes, I had my site converted to use there mailer component, all
my emails configured, created tons of sub-domains which you will see shortly,
and even installed a phpBB for the fun of it. I now have access to mySQL and msSQL.
Anyways, the bandwidth is much faster so enjoy.
I am at it again. Since philosophy is so hard, I started a study group. In the
process of making the website for the philosophy group, I got inspired by its
design. So I made a new site, but for once I finally put up a portfolio section.
I am still adding sites, but I am having a hard time finding a few of them, even
with the way back machine. I may be fickle, but I think I may stay with this look
for a while and change the graphic up top ever so often.
More good news, I am still not playing that addictive game and I don't want to
anymore. That was messed up. Instead I started making some websites and playing
with 3d max more.
Got bored so I made another site. Nothing new, just a different layout. Damn philosophy
You can't find me on that game anymore, after posting the news article, I decided
that it was not in my best interest in playing it anymore. Funny how I have to
keep battling my addition to this computer as a source of my entertainment. I
wonder if I can fully break from it someday. To replace the game I have started
riding my bike again. My birthday is coming up and I am thinking about getting
a new frame and start getting in better shape.
A lot of people are downloading samples this month, the most ever.
9/28/02 - Well
school has been great so far. Two of my essays have passed, I am ahead in math
with 100's across the board, and an A so far in my effective learning class. I
will admit that my hardest class at the moment is Philosophy. I was loving it
at the beginning but now I am having trouble keeping up, and no I have not missed
On the other hand I have been playing this game called Subspace (now called Continuum)
way to much. I tried so hard to get away from this damn machine but ended up moving
to something else, OMG. You can grab this free game at SubSpace
Downloads. In case you can't get it from there, do a search on google for
continuum37.exe. It is online asteroids game, get to meet alot of people and kill
them. Look me up, I play in the Chaos Zone under the names Attention, Attainment,
6/30/02 - It's
about that time. 27 years old and going back to college, not like I ever really
went. Passed my TASP test with flying colors Reading:288, Math:282, Writing:240
(Phew). So looks like I am heading back soon.
I did just pickup some new audio programs so I may play around with some toons
and see what happens. Sick of the web but missing creativity. Thank you to everyone
showing love on the guestbook, thednb.com is still my best accomplishment on the
web and in life yet. Hoping school will become my new first. Amanda and I move
to a new apartment in a few weeks, it is the nicest thing we will have lived in
yet. Brand new, real granite counters, real tile, and all stainless steel appliances.
- My life has been a rollercoaster for the past few years. My career in the past
two just keeps going down instead of up. I have caught myself a bad case of the
burn out, and it has sparked a whole new energy to learn new and useful things.
As many may know, I started a hobbyshop/track for radio control cars, but I have
sold the business. It just was not my time to be a business owner.
Site has been rebooted, I am burnt out so all I did was a graphic. All of you
have seen the cool flash effects and the tired ole rollovers, so I feel the graphic
is all I need to explain myself.
2/16/02 - THEDNB.COM
is forced to close it's door permanently. I would like to thank all of those involved
such as Audionuts, Mimic, Level9, Diesel, and all of the artists. By closing the
doors, this does not reflect any upon the drum and bass sound or future, it was
purely based on a personal decision by myself due to the lack of time and funds.
THEDNB.COM grew at a rate that was phenomenal and that should always be remembered.
If you are still looking for a place to house your tracks, please look at ElectronicScene.com.
- Oh my, I am still here. Starting a hobbyshop/track and having to sell a lot
of stuff to make this happen. Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving.
- Getting settled in a bit now in Austin that I got a job. Started racing a little
again, just got back from race in Louisana. With 2 packs of practice I tq'd and
won stk buggy and got 2nd in mod buggy. Learning that practice isn't needed for
me to do well, it may actually hender my racing due to over concentration &
stress. Go see the
7/16/01 - Well
it has been a full week at work. It is taking some time getting used to human
interaction again. My last job was out of the house so it has been about 2 years
since I have been in a 8-5 office enviroment. The people are nice and I am getting
some good freedom on my first project, their website. Can't wait to show everyone.
Check out lessrain, absolutely
stunning in all its simplicity.
7/1/01 - Ok,
so what the hell is the deal with people going to movies and taking off their
shoes and propping them up on the chairs? Or going to the book store and there
are people sprawled out on the floor with their shoes off reading books? Sorry
but this just bothers me, maybe I am anti-foot. Got a new song today by Squarepusher

I am really liking this track, it reminds me of Aphex Twin.
6/27/01 - I

6/14/01 - You

has a lot of meaning and if you are in the web-dev field you should be able to
relate to alot of his emotions. Time for a new mp3, coming in a few days.
6/8/01 - Can

car, does about 30mph and we race them all around the world. Expect to see a whole
series of rc graphics soon. Want to learn more? Here are some sites for you to
check out. LOSI, ASSOCIATED,

- The new version has gone online. Some new features include news, guestbook,
and portfolio. The basic purpose of this revision was to add more technology to
the site, other then flash. The site now uses, asp, sql, dhtml, and flash, hopefully
making it a great hybrid site. So sign the guestbook and check out these two cool
sites. CUBADUST and REBOOT
